We investigated the luminosity function (LF) and initial mass function (IMF) of some open clusters having different ages. To calculate the LF, we followed the classical definition by van Rhijn (1936). Statistical investigation of the dispersion around a range of magnitudes concerning what is called Wielen dip revealed that the dip is unreal. To confirm the unreality of the dip, we computed the IMF for these open clusters, the statistical investigation of the IMF confirmed the results obtained using the LF, that is, there is no dip for these open clusters under study.
